Cristiano Ronaldo Once Stood Naked In Front Of Mirror And Said: "But Lionel Messi Doesn't' Look Like This"

Cristiano Ronaldo Once Stood Naked In Front Of Mirror And Said: "But Lionel Messi Doesn't' Look Like This"

It takes a huge amount of sacrifice to become the very best, just ask Cristiano Ronaldo, who constantly strives for perfection on a game-by-game basis.

The man himself has recently claimed that he will carry on playing for another eight years as he keeps his body in tip top condition.

It was revealed by Business Insider that the 33-year-old has eight hours of sleep, which gives him enough time to complete his ab workout before breakfast, and drinks plenty of fluids throughout the day - like any football would.

His routine when arriving at the stadium, though, is slightly different.

Wayne Rooney once said that the former Manchester United winger used to look at his own reflection in the mirror to psych himself.

And now former England international Peter Crouch has revealed that Rio Ferdinand once told him a story about the former Los Blancos forward that will live long in the memory.

"Rio Ferdinand would tell us stories about how Cristiano Ronaldo would stand in front of the mirror naked, running his hand through his hair, and say, 'Wow. I'm so beautiful!' Crouch told The Daily Mail.

"The other United players would try to wind him up. 'Whatever. Leo Messi is a better player than you.'

As we mentioned earlier, Wayne Rooney once said that the former Manchester United winger used to look at his own reflection in the mirror to psych himself up.

"In the time I've been playing with Ronnie, the one thing I've noticed about him is that he can't walk past his reflection without admiring it, even if we're about to play a game of football." he said in an interview with GOAL.

"Every match, before the team goes out for the warm-up, he runs through the same routine. The kit goes on, the boots go on. Not long after, Ronnie turns to his reflection and stares, psyching himself up for the game.

"If there's one person with a bigger self-belief than Ronaldo, I haven't met him yet. He's not shy."

You might be right there, Wayne, he's definitely not shy.
